Virtual Platforms / Requirements
Tuition is due 10 working days prior to the start of the workshops
Virtual workshops are conducted in Zoom or WebEx. In addition, you will be introduced to Mural, a powerful and easy to use virtual whiteboard. These two platforms have made it possible to deliver virtual classes with the same or better results than live workshops.
The use of Mural, our virtual whiteboard, has made it much easier to conduct assessments, investigations and root cause analysis when we cannot conduct meetings in person.
Prior to the start of class, you will be provided pre-workshop instructions on how to use Zoom/WebEx, and a link to a practice Mural so you can get acquainted with the virtual whiteboard.
Because this is an all virtual workshop, participants are required to have a webcam and microphone and be able to access Zoom/WebEx and Mural through the internet.
Internet download speeds greater than 30 Mbps are highly recommended.
Who Should Attend
Graduates from our premier BlueDragon Critical Thinking and Complex Problem Solving workshops.
